I find my 2003 SLK-320 always fun to
drive. It's a sporty and a real head
turner going down the road. If the sun
is out, the top is down. Or 25 seconds
later it can be a hardtop again. You'll
need to watch the speedometer because
it is truly effortless to get to and
exceed highway speeds. I love the
throaty sound when I step on the gas.
The motor eagerly responds at all
speeds with ease. Comfortable seats and
ride with plenty of legroom. Almost
intuitive handling in turns, curves
and "other" manuvers. The cockpit has
well laid out gauges and controls. I've
had no problems to date.
Hardtop convertible, in 25 seconds it's
either a convertible or hardtop. The
heated seats warm quickly and allow top
down driving more often and they are
nice in brisk mornings or nights. The
Bose sound system is well suited for
this car top up or down.
Drink holder should be better placed.
Stock radio needs to be updated. No one
uses tapes anymore. The CD changer
needs to come out of the trunk and into
the front console (integrated into
headunit would be best) where it
